Product Description

Rie Warren gives readers a bad boy bachelor and a tattooed vixen in this hot new release from her steamy southern series.

New York Times bestselling paranormal author, Nicky—Nick—Love is anything but successful in love. For years he’s lost himself in his writing career, but now he’s ready to get back to his rebel-boy roots. While restoring a motorcycle at Stone’s Auto Service, he meets the Wildcat of his dreams. She’s a shock to the system for the romance writer who doesn’t remember a damn thing about wooing a woman.

Cool-as-ice, Catarina “Wildcat” Steele is utterly untouchable until Nicky ignites a spark she can’t control. Their electric attraction explodes as Nicky pursues her, but he comes bearing the baggage of a family tragedy he’s hidden from everyone. He knows love has no guarantees.

Their passionate romance falls apart when Nicky discovers Cat’s secret rivals his own. The truth about her past reopens Nicky’s raw wounds and awakens a ghost he never laid to rest. He doesn’t know how to have Cat, and now he can’t trust her. Will they be torn apart . . . or tamed by love?

3.5 Stars...While I liked this one I must admit it wasn't as good as I was expecting for some reason. I think when Nick found out about Cat's secret I didn't like his reaction. Of cause he kind of redeemed him self and I was glad they got their HEA. Again the slang threw me a bit but not to unmanageable. Overall an enjoyable read but just not wow for me.

★✩★✩★ 5 -LOVE THIS SERIES- Stars ★✩★✩★

~Wildcat riled me up and made me feel alive like no other woman had.~

I have no problem owning up to my reaction when I came across the email showing a new Rie Warren book coming out, especially when I saw it was the next in the Carolina Bad Boys Series.... Total Freak Out!!

There is just something about this woman that gets me every time and this series became a fast addiction. What's different about it is the fact that it's told entirely from our badbiy Alpha man's POV, something I imagine is not easy to do but Rie pulls it off beautifully. These men are crass, dirty, foul, hilarious, hott and yet they have these sweet sides that never cross over to even slightly feminine. They are also not afraid to show emotion when the situation calls for it, they just handle it differently than a woman does which I expect. This book did have a slightly different feel to it from the first one; where book one leaned more on the funny/sexy side with a dash of drama, this one dove into the more serious topic of addiction. That's not to say it was too heavy, or that it ran on angst over-load, but it definitely had a darker feel to it at times as we got up close and personal with Josh's best friend, Paranormal Romance Author ~ Nicky Love...

~a woman with a troubled past was a headache I didn't need. I had too many skeletons in my own closet. I didn't have any room for anybody else's.~

Nick already went through the man-whore phase of his life and he's over it. That's not to say he's looking for love, he firmly believes the only HEA's he will ever experience are the ones he writes into his books.

Loved it

I love the easiness and flow of the story Rie Warren creates a beautiful world full of love, lust and hotties!!!

I found this story quite more emotional than the first in the series.

Nicky is hard headed and strong and drool worthy, his attraction to Cat is strong and entirely believable.

Cat is cool all inked arms and tragic past. She has bite and vulnerability to boot.

They both ride the emotional roller coaster to get the HEA

A real page turner with everything!!!

All up I enjoyed this instalment and really look forward to Steele's story which is next.

5.0 out of 5 stars hot Hot HOT romance 12 December 2014
By Terisia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If you like hot Hot HOT realistic romance, get this book NOW!
Rie Warren is an amazing writer. All the characters in this book, from Nick and Cat through Frankie the Italian Stallion, are developed nicely - when you read their scenes, you will picture them, believe me. The storyline is great. The lovin' is frequent and intense. There is an HEA, (it's terrific) and let us not forget the humor that will have you laughing out loud at times.
If you've read any of Rie's other books, you will love this one. If you haven't read any others, jump right in - this is the second book in the series, but certainly stands alone with no problem. Be prepared to get hooked on Rie's works - you can probably tell I certainly am!

(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

4.0 out of 5 stars 4-4.5 stars -- fast paced and fun! 12 December 2014
By Rachel M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Nick Love has more secrets and pain in his past than his public face shows. From his attempt at passing himself off as a gay author, to his easy hook-ups, Nick generally seems like the life of the party, a happy guy. But behind what he shows those around him, he is hiding some pretty dark secrets, even from his best friend Stone.

Catarina Steele is buttoned up, closed off, but only when she’s dealing with Nick. Every once in a while she shows Nick a glimpse of a wildcat behind her prim and proper persona, and those tiny glimpses are enough to have him intrigued (and the rest of the guys at Stone’s garage razzing him big-time).

The pain that follows both characters threatens the light easy connection they find and I was quickly hooked into these characters: finding out what they were hiding, what they would do when the secrets came out, and how they would recover from the truth.

I loved both the early parts of the book where Nick is doing his best to get Cat to notice him, and later when they both started showing vulnerability. Their hang ups and secrets drove a lot of the drama throughout the book, but I was continually rooting for them, that they would be able to sort out the darkness and move beyond their pasts.

The Hens and Widows, Nick’s writing friends and their spouses, were present during parts of the story and brought with them humor and an over the top aspect that was a nice break from the darker issues of the book.

Love in the Fast Lane was both surprising and exactly what I was looking for from this second book in the Carolina Bad Boys series from Rie Warren. It was exactly what I was hoping for in that it was a quickly paced story with characters that drew me in and made me want to root for them. It was also surprising because where Stone was funny and leaned towards slapstick, Love is darker and filled with the pain of the characters’ pasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars ~ 12 December 2014
By Erica Smith A One-Click Addict's Book Blog - Published on

Love in the Fast Lane picks up shortly after Stone, atYour Service ends. Stone and Leelee are starting their life
together and Nick is working on his next series.
Nick sees Cat and that's all it takes, one look and he has to have her.
Nick and Cat have ups and downs, secrets, deep buried pain that won't allow them to fully live their lives, it
holds them back and they both keep it bottled up not asking anyone for help or to listen.
If I lusted after Josh Stone from book one, I'm in love with Nick after this one!!
We got alot of Nick in book one but we get inside his head this time, not just the occasional thought about
Stone's sex life, you get to know him from the inside out-his hopes, fears, secrets, everything right from the source.
And Cat. This girl is a holy terror, a complete pain in the ass, an ice queen and so worth the wait! She's more
than she appears to be, the scars and secrets she hides are exposed to Nick and he has to decide if she's worth
the risk. I don't want to give anything away, just know this story is much deeper than Stone and Leelee's. I loved
every minute of this book, even when I wanted to slap some characters silly I knew something hilarious or sweet or
unbelievably sexy was just a page turn away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Holy Hotness 12 December 2014
By A. Adams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads Review Team~
This is the second book in the Carolina Bad Boys series, to get the full effect I suggest you read the books in order. In this book we see all our favorites from book one and meet some new ones. This is Nicky’s story. I liked Nick in the first book but now I full out love him! Nicky has his secrets even his closest friend Josh doesn’t know about. Catarina Steele is cold as ice and no one can break through her walls. The first meeting between the two starts off with a slap across the face, that should tell you how well things go from there. Nicky and Cat get to know each other and when the secrets are revealed will they be able to work things out? It was a great story with some angst, lust and hot sex. I can’t wait to read the next book!
Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: holy hell was it hot
Religious: no
Would I recommend to others: yes
More than one book in the series: yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: yes

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series to follow , alpha males , strong chicks and HOT SEX !! 18 December 2014
By amie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had been looking forward to Nick's story and I was not disappointed at all !! Again I enjoyed this story in the male POV !! I just love being in a mans head it is refreshing and I just love seeing all sides of them !! We met Nick in book 1 , he is Josh's BFF and a paranormal writer. Josh had pretended to be his lover at the author convention in book 1 and the humor from that carried over into this story and I loved it !! I found myself laughing outloud a lot !! Rie is great at writing details so you get to know the characters , especially the main characters and although I love that I felt myself trying to rush into Nick and Cat's moments because they had this build up of sexual tension since the slap in book1 !! But since I do appreciate a longer story and details to make those connections you want as a reader I took my time and enjoyed getting to know Nick , his family and his past. he is a great guy and damn he is an alpha animal !!

This story gives you the sexual tension ten fold and it seems like it will never happen but when it does HOT DAMN !! Nick is phenomenal and he and Cat are on FIRE !! ALL THE TIME. I loved it. There is quite a bit of Josh and LeeLee in this story which was great as well. I enjoyed being a part of their big moments and seeing their happiness and enjoying the fun they all had. Again there were a lot of laughs in this story but there was also some pretty heavy stuff too. Nick has suffered a huge loss and never opened up to anyone about until Cat. despite the amount of trust he put in her she didn't give her whole self to him and when she finally did it may be too late for them. Her secrets shocked nick and turned him into a man I didn't like very much at all. I didn't give up on him and thankfully he redeemed himself and you can read to find out if there was an HEA !! I have to mention there were some pretty phenomenal things being said during some speeches and i just felt so much emotion in their words , these guys are great about being open and honest. I will say we get a nice lead into the book and a sneak peek at a bit of it too !!

Looking forward to more by Rie and enjoying the series so far !!
